There Dr. Chris Mason, department chair, and Dr. Von Homer, visiting assistant professor, shared information with the governor about their research on neuromuscular stability and muscle tension and the development of analysis that can predictively identify those with a higher possibility of injury.

Gov. Carney then visited the Department of Mass Communication’s radio and television studios, where he sat down for a five-minute on camera interview with senior Mass Comm major Morgan Poole. During the interview, he witnessed that the entire camera crew and control room technical were DSU Mass Comm students. Gov.
